Plenty Of Support For Munster

The Red Army was once again on the move as they gathered in their usual huge numbers in support of Munster in their final Pool game against Montauban tomorrow in Stade Sapiac.

Munster Sports Travel shipped over 550 supporters from Cork Limerick and Dublin, the team flight arriving from Shannon at Toulouse Airport in the early afternoon with hundreds more expected to arrive by various routes in the next 24 hours.

While the majority of the supporters stayed in Toulouse the squad and management made their way to Montauban, checking into their Crowne Plaza hotel before making the short trip to the match venue for the usual walk around.

Local expectations are for a Montauban victory with media inviting the home side to write a new page in the history of the club by downing the Heineken Cup champions.
